J. Martin, BBA 1999 in Performance Improvement Technology, is a consultant for Jamcorp Solutions, LP, a company he owns in San Antonio.
“My first class with Dr. Mo in 1998 got me hooked on the e-learning industry and a career in IT,” said Martin. Like Lamm and Kersting, Martin became passionate about the field after taking classes under Dr. James Moshinkskie, “Dr. Mo” as he is known to the students. Moshinskie recently retired from his posts at the Hankamer School of Business, but remains an e-learning consultant.
“Dr. Mo taught me all I know,” said Lamm, BBA 2004 in Finance with a concentration in IT, who owns Simply Interactive in Waco. “I work closely with him today on e-learning projects. We have a great, symbiotic relationship. He is a great friend, mentor and teacher.”
At Jamcorp Solutions, Martin is responsible for a small contract work as a web producer with a team of business, marketing and IT professionals for USAA.com, among other clients. His team produces in-house e-learning and company Web sites.
“My first business contract gave me the opportunity to work with the Air Force. For three years, I worked with a great team of people as we designed, developed and launched an e-learning system that is used by airmen across the globe,” said Martin.
“Today, I enjoy working with people and finding the right technology that meets their needs. It is a thrill helping clients find solutions that work – whether it is placing learning on the web, designing custom websites, or managing IT projects for my clients,” he said.
Martin met his wife April, BBA 2000, while attending Baylor business classes together. They dreamed of owning their own business someday – and it didn’t take that long. They opened their first company in 2002 and now own three small businesses together along with a movie production company started with Martin’s brother, Josh, in 2005. Martin takes pleasure in the thrills and personal growth of being an IT entrepreneur.
“I started four businesses in my twenties and look forward to watching them grow in my thirties and beyond,” said Martin. “I enjoy the learning, the pace, the challenges and the sense of accomplishment with this business. I also find it appealing when the checks actually show up.”Back to Bears Behind the Screens
